We just got back from two nights at the Black Walnut Inn to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We thought we were getting a secluded luxury cabin by the bay, which is what was advertised.
To our surprise, the "luxury cabin" was a single wide trailer with wood paneling. The screens on the porch were ripped, the place was dirty, the refrigerator was disgusting and the vinyl flooring in the bathroom was buckling. Last night brought a cold snap, but the heating did not work well so the night was long and cold.
Here is the best part ... we came back yesterday from the oyster fest in St. Michaels and the room had not been touched, no clean towels or anything. I asked when the room was going to be made up and the answer I got was "people don't usually want it and I forgot to ask". Really?! I have traveled many years and this is the first time I have enountered a place that does not make your room up or bring clean towels. Even the flea bag motels make up the room.
For the $249/night that we paid, we expected much much more. I give this B&B a -4 rating. The views however are a 5 so the total experience is a 1!
